JOEL ( pic­tured right) and Benji Mad­den ap­proached The Voice

Kids as they would a school zone: with cau­tion.

The tat­tooed rocker twins are as com­pet­i­tive as they come with each other, but Joel says they share the re­spon­si­bil­ity for nur­tur­ing The Voice Kids’ im­pres­sion­able young artists.

“The ex­pe­ri­ence kids have on the show will be dic­tated by the adults,” he says.

“It is the dif­fer­ence be­tween say­ing: ‘ That was an awe­some ex­pe­ri­ence for you’ and ‘ You didn’t win’.

“It’s not just about win­ning, it’s about get­ting some­thing real out of it. I know the artists care about win­ning and I will try to help them win. Maybe I am crazy, maybe I am a hip­pie, but this is an awe­some op­por­tu­nity. Those kids want to be on The

Voice stage, to live that dream and be­yond that, there’s no huge prize. Ex­cept a $ 500 gift cer­tifi­cate and trips to Dis­ney­land.”
